What are you doing to avoid the resale of 6 Music Festival Tickets?

Tickets are limited to 4 per event per customer and photo ID will be required to be presented by the lead booker upon arrival at the venue on the night of the show. The name of the lead booker will be printed on each ticket. The name cannot be changed once the booking has been made.

The lead booker will be asked to present ID to gain entry into the venue. Failure to adhere to the terms and conditions may result in the customer's order being void. If you are booking more than one ticket your guests must arrive at the concert at the same time as you. Failure to do so may result in guests being turned away.

Tickets cannot be resold or transferred under any circumstances. If the organiser reasonably believes this to be the case the barcode on the ticket will be voided, prohibiting entry to the concert.

Tickets may not be sold, traded, or offered for sale; and may not be used as a prize or for any other promotional or trade purpose by any organisation except the BBC.

We strongly recommend that you do not risk buying tickets that are being resold on secondary ticketing sites or privately.
